I found a free printable map online and printed one for Reagan and myself. We cut it out then glued it in our bullet journals. My mother-in-law said she never thought to glue things in her bullet journal. I got the idea from the interactive notebooks students used when I taught middle school.
I used this pin on Pinterest as my guide. I liked the quote she used so I used it too. I went with Harry Potter font for the title cuz... I love Harry Potter!
We've driven through some states, some states we only spent the night in and others we vacationed in. So I decided to come up with a way to show the difference. I created a legend on the left side. If we spent any time in a state doing fun things or sightseeing or spent a few days I considered that part of our vacation and colored it in solid. If we just drove through or only spent the night then I just did lines. I did it this way so that if we go back to that state and vacation I can easily go back and fill it in. The only thing I might do different next time is use different colors or maybe patterns to indicate that I've been to that state more than once.
I also want to keep up with how many states I've been too. But every time I counted the states on the map I came up with a different number. Ha! I finally just sat down one day and wrote down each state I had colored and counted. I came up with 24. You can see there on the right in orange my tally marks. I'll add a tally each time I mark a state.
I'd like to eventually visit every state. And this is a fun way for me to keep track of the states I still need to visit.
